Here is the differences between Sookie from HBO's True Blood and Snookie from MTV's The Jersey Shore.
One lives with the cold and undead, and her life is controlled by the sun. She was born into misery, in a region of this country filled with ignorance and hate. When we first met her, she was beaten within an inch of her life - and she is a character so ridiculous, it makes sense for her to be fictional.
And the other is played by Anna Paquin.
